About Marching for More

Thursday, September 26th, 2019 at Ohio Stadium 

Since 2009, this event has raised more than 1.3 million dollars to support Gladden’s programs and services.

In honor of our 10th year of this impactful event, The Best Damn Band in the Land (TBDBITL) has once again teamed up with Gladden Community House to host Marching for More, an evening of celebration to raise awareness and vital funds for Gladden’s work on behalf of children and families in Franklinton.

Partnering through tradition, music and community service, this annual event with The Ohio State University Marching Band has helped Gladden raise more than $1.3 million dollars in support of Gladden’s life-impacting work and mission.

Enjoy a premier performance from TBDBITL as they triumphantly support Gladden Community House and March for More at the ‘Shoe on September 26th. This unique fundraiser, is the only occasion when all of TBDBITL marches together for more than Ohio State.
